Antique French Carved Oak Cathedral Church Gothic Entry Hall Bench Pew CANOPY
Tall Antique French Carved Oak Cathedral Church Gothic Entry Hall Bench Pew CANOPY
~Direct from France~
~From a French cathedral, OVER 8 FT. TALL and a stunning work of art!!~
~The profile alone captures the attention of everyone in the room, and closer inspection reveals magnificent hand carvings. Large panels on both the bench back and the lower front are completely filled with elaborate carved gothic tracery designs. Full figural French carved male and female on each side below the canopy.
AND NOTE THE ORIGINAL CANOPY, with all it’s finials and carvings (even the underside of the canopy is paneled with carved linen fold designs).
More often than not, these canopies are lost over the years, so while we do occasionally find the tall back cathedral benches, this is the first one we’ve found in FIFTEEN years with the original canopy!~
~Open carved side panels below each arm~
~Paneled bench top has large hinges and lifts open to interior storage area~
~SOLID OAK, Heavy and strong, well built by craftsmen of the period~
99”height (over 8 ft.) x 51” x 20”.
The canopy will come off for shipment, it is 18”height x 48” x 16”.
The bench without the canopy is 81”height x 51” x 20”.
Interior storage, approx. 14.5”height x 46.5” x 16.5”.

Floor to seat height, approx. 20”.
Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to size. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only), typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.
This item is in AMAZING condition for its age, (again, the existence of the canopy is quite rare) with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. Flat arm surfaces have some separations; interior storage has some board shrinkage, as to be expected. Some staining on the bench top. As noted, the canopy detaches from the bench back. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to making a purchase. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….not for like-new condition!!!
